Picking Up Momentum on Persona Paper

Twelve days ago I wrote to tell you that I had reached the five thousand coin threshold, and was finally eligible to cash out after five months on Persona Paper. At that time I figured my earnings averaged out to about 1,000 coins per month, so in theory I ought to have made another thousand within the space of thirty days or so.

Now that's a bit of an adjusted figure, because for part of the time I was on Persona Paper I was relatively inactive. But still, I think it's fair.

And I'm here to tell you that things are beginning to pick up on the site! Today when I checked my bank, I discovered I had earned that next 1,000 coins. So I'm ahead of schedule! And I'm hoping that's a sign that everyone here on Persona Paper is potentially earning more.

I had been starting to feel that traffic was down. Many of my posts are getting significantly lower page views since about mid-October, and I wonder if that's due to people losing momentum when the expected rate increase didn't come. But something must be working – whether it's page views on older content, or maybe just a lot more outgoing comments than I'd realized I was writing. Something has sped me along from 5,000 coins to the six-thousand mark.

Admittedly, I did get several 25-coin bonuses for recruiting new members. But so far I've only been credited with a total of nine (out of about 14 or 15) – that makes 225 coins, so less than a quarter of the 1,000 accrued in the past two weeks. It obviously gave me a bit of a push, but it's not the only thing that's been working.

If I had to put my finger on it, I'd say the main cause is that I've been writing much more since the beginning of November. In the last twelve days I've published eighteen posts on Persona Paper. This will make nineteen, and also fulfils my goal to keep posting twice a day to complete DawnWriter 's . And I think if anything, it's making the effort to both publish consistently for this challenge and also commenting and trying to visit newer members (as per &AliCat 's challenge .)

Having more contacts with more users, and providing more content for them to interact with, seems to be ensuring that I'll earn more consistently here on Persona Paper. Common sense really, isn't it?

I thought the lack of traffic was due to the Tsu effect...

Congrats on moving along more this month.

I just started here, so I can't really say, but based on my experience on other writing platforms it has always picked up momentum after a while. I am sure everything you mentioned that you are doing is all helping towards that end. Keep it up.

I think Tsu will actually help bring traffic to PersonaPaper. Their TOS allow us to post links to our other articles, such as those we write here.

thank you for giving much needed inspiration to new members like me here in Persona Paper. knowing how you attain success here is a good example to follow.

bestwriter wrote on November 24, 2014, 11:30 PM

I noticed that too - your presence that is emoticon :cool: You are an inspiration here and so get going and post and post and post!!!

BarbRad wrote on November 24, 2014, 11:42 PM

Sounds sensible to me. I think that Ellis is right that some of the inactivity is due to the tsu effect, but I have been seeing more coins come in the past couple of days with no increased effort.

I agree, Glenn. I've had several people join Persona Paper because of links I posted to Tsu, and I've noticed that some of my writing links are bringing in extra traffic when people see them there. On FB, Pinterest, etc, most of those links get shared or liked on that social network, but not a lot of people bother to actually click...

Dawnwriter wrote on November 25, 2014, 12:48 AM

I agree..good content and more comments equal to success at Persona paper. As we interact more, there will be greater activity that will benefit the site and its members.

Good job and congratulations on your five dollars. I'm still four dollars away from doing that.

How to be successful here in PersonaPaper? Can anyone give me more idea about this site? Thank you.

AmyBoo wrote on November 25, 2014, 5:47 AM

This is great to read, and hopefully your right, more traffic is starting to come through meaning higher earnings for everyone. Im new here but I write on a lot of sites and I see hope in this one :)

Congrats on your fast movement! Wish you to keep this momentum.

I also reached 5000 a few days ago but did not cash out still not that active but I got over 120 coins. Has the money gone in your PayPal already? how many days did it take? I plan to cash out in Dec.

Donna_Thacker wrote on November 25, 2014, 8:58 AM

My turkey post did well and I have jumped up in coins this morning. Finally struggled past that one dollar mark so that is good to see. I think writing more and commenting more is the key here.

phoenixmaid wrote on November 25, 2014, 9:43 AM

Well done for reaching 5000 coins as with anything the more effort you put into it the more you get out so writing 2 posts a day seems like a good way to start

You are like a house afire, lady. : ) I'm happy to hear good things are coming your way as a result of your continuing efforts.

LoudMan wrote on November 25, 2014, 8:48 PM

Your first redemption takes the longest. Being active at all, each will come quicker. Want to really bake your noodle? Do the 15-a-day for a week straight.

LoudMan wrote on November 25, 2014, 9:00 PM

And, shared, .

CoralLevang wrote on November 25, 2014, 9:45 PM

Congratulations on making it work. I wish I had your dedication!!

CoralLevang wrote on November 25, 2014, 9:48 PM

That sounds dirty, Ruby3881 ! ;) I'm not sure that LoudMan 's advice on "bak(ing) your noodle" is something that should be undertaken without caution. But then I hardly believe that he could keep up that pace for long. "Noodle" is a euphemism for something, right? emoticon :winking: ROFL

Sorry, couldn't resist!

It's always great to move along faster than you expected! emoticon :smile:

AliCanary wrote on November 27, 2014, 1:25 AM

I'm just 13 coins shy of the 6,000 mark, myself. I got my referral credits, as well, but I think you are right about views finally beginning to accumulate on older pieces (I noticed it when I update my spreadsheet). This could get kinda exciting :)

Isabella wrote on November 27, 2014, 8:07 PM

I myself have slowed down my writing on PP only because I became so distracted on Tsu, I really miss that tight knit community that we have here on PP. Congratulations Kyla, I'm really happy for you, great work!

Ruby3881 wrote on November 30, 2014, 6:06 AM

Thanks Angel! I hope others will see things pick up too :)

celticeagle wrote on December 3, 2014, 3:43 AM

Tsu is actually how I heard of PP. It was pretty slow there for a while. I was beginning to wonder. I think it is picking up nicely. Glad you got more done.

It gets better and better, too, as the production builds up your library. You'll notice a nearly-dependable number of coins each day, as you contine posting. Skip a day and you'll also see a difference. It's pretty astounding. I want to hit a point of residual income, only logging in every couple of weeks to post an update. I guesstimate, it'll start at 1,000 posts.

LoudMan wrote on December 8, 2014, 7:32 AM

CoralLevang Of course it is! emoticon :winking:

LoudMan wrote on December 8, 2014, 7:33 AM

're right. Keeping p 15-a-day is hard. I've only actually managed a few days of it, myself.

If a potential spammer reads this post, about using 5 months to get the first cashout, he will not join.

valmnz wrote on January 31, 2015, 8:23 PM

&AliCat has just pointed out the challenge, so I'm going to have a go at it. The membership has grown a lot since she started, even since I started two weeks a go. But I'm keen to give it a go.
